2003 Volvo S60 Question: Gas Smell

 

Question

There is a strong gasoline odor with our 2003 S60. Does anybody else have this issue? I believe there was a TSB issued about the aux tank, but wasn't sure if that could be the source.

    I've seen these leak from the access covers for the fuel pump. There are two covers on top of the tank, and they are accessed by removing the rear seat bottom.
    However, when it comes to fuel leaks, don't wait or prolong a thorough inspection of the fuel system. Good Luck!

    HAd the same issue on my 2003 S60 2.4T. Volvo replaced fuel filter under 7 year 70000 mile warranty but then I received a recall notice 2 weeks later.
